Poured coffee on my macbook pro - liquids and electrical devices just don't work well together.
Easy. Followed the instructions. A lot of steps but simple to do. A couple of the pictures could've been clearer, but overall pretty great.
Not much. Read the ifixit instructions.
Spilled a drink on my keyboard. After drying out, the keyboard still didn't work.
Took a good 2-3 hours to take all those little tiny screws out, change the topcase, and get it back together. One of the little screws got stripped, but it was just holding a cable tie-down, so I broke off the cable tie down and everything else went fine. When I got all the little screws back in, it started right up and worked fine! Apple Store wanted $1200 for the repair, and I spent $300. Well worth it.
1) Work in a well-lit area, and if your eyes are like mine, get a magnifying glass so you can see for sure what type of screwdriver you need.
2) Be careful about stripping screws-- some are put in by Apple really tight, and you can strip them before you know it. You have to press down hard while turning to get them loose.
3) I didn't do this, but it would be a good idea to make labels for the different sets of screws, i.e. which are for hard drive, which are for logic board, etc. I had to mull over which were for which after I got them all out. Definitely keep the sets of screws sorted.
I spilled iced tea on my keyboard, hence making it sticky and messy. The trackpad was also useless.
The repair went well. I looked at the guide and got an idea of what to expect. The entire process took me about an hour, but i was moving slowly and methodicaly since this was my first repair of it. I would be able to do it much faster next time.
The price here listed was the best ones for the Keyboard and Mouse. There are some other sites which sell them seperatly but much more expensive. I really was pleased with how easily it all went.
